Cardi B, along with Raven-Symoné, helped a happy couple get married on the latest episode of Cardi Tries, the rapper’s Facebook Messenger video series.
Cardi acted as the officiant and Raven was the ringbearer for the wedding of Brandi and Shannon, a lovely same-sex couple, in an episode released just ahead of National Coming Out Day.
“By the way WORLD I’m licensed to marry people ….sooo yea… I do it all and this was such a fulfilling thing to do and Raven was soo fun I was sooo starstruck,” Cardi tweeted on Saturday (Oct. 9).
Cardi Tries: Tying the Knot shows the brides’ big day, where one surprised the other with the celebrity-assisted pop-up wedding.
Cardi and Raven helped with planning the same-day nuptials — from selecting table settings to choosing a wedding gown — before taking part in the actual ceremony.
“You guys are probably wondering why I’m here,” Cardi — who recently gave birth to her second child, made history with her “WAP” wins at the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards, and had her “Rumors” collab with Lizzo debut in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 — announced in front of a small group of the couple’s family and friends. “I’m gonna get these two beautiful ladies married.”
“It’s not only a special day for you guys. It’s a special day for me. I want to thank you guys for making me a part of your beautiful journey,” she said, fanning her face before beginning the ceremony.
By the end of the episode, Cardi — who privately wed Offset in 2017 — had decided, “I think I’m gonna have a wedding-wedding now.”
Earlier, she’d confided to Raven, “I got married in my bedroom … I do wish I had a bigger wedding because I’m very flamboyant, so I do want the whole dress and the whole cake and everything. I didn’t even have a ring, so I just didn’t feel like I was married because I didn’t have the whole shabangabang.”
